Hugo Lloris has seen two of his saves nominated for UEFA’s Save of the Season award.

Hugo denies Iceland's Sverrir Ingi IngasonMaking a flying save against Germany

Our popular French international goalkeeper, captain of club and country, made the shortlist twice for his wonder-stops against Iceland and Germany at Euro 2016.

He is the only player to have more than one nomination in the 2015-16 reckoning, with stops from the likes of Manuel Neuer and Gianluigi Buffon also in the top 10.

The first of Hugo’s saves came in France’s Euro 2016 quarter-final against Iceland, where he somehow kept out Sverrir Ingi Ingason’s close-range header shortly after the hour mark.

The 29-year-old produced further heroics in Les Bleus’ semi-final victory over Germany, making a flying one-handed save to deny Joshua Kimmich in stoppage time.


Fans are being encouraged to vote for the best save, with the winner to be announced prior to the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League group stage draw on August 25.
